Veterans Memorial Goes Before Pleasanton City Council Tonight

Original post made by Doug Miller, Country Fair, on Nov 3, 2015

Tonight the Pleasanton City Council will conduct a final review of the proposed veterans memorial in Pleasanton.

Following City Council approval exactly one year ago of the Pioneer Cemetery Master Plan which set aside a site for a veterans memorial, a group of local veterans has been working to design an appropriate memorial for the site. On August 31st, the Pleasanton Civic Arts Commission approved the design concept for the memorial. On September 10th the Pleasanton Parks and Recreation Commission voted unanimously to approve the design for construction at the Pioneer Cemetery.

Over 500 veterans dating back to the Civil War are buried in the Pioneer Cemetery. This memorial is designed to pay respect to all who served from Pleasanton and the adjacent area. The memorial will make special note of those where died during service to our nation.

The meeting will take place tonight at 7PM in the City Council chambers located at 200 Old Bernal Avenue.
